There is no need to pre book your cruise tickets.

Lastly, just an update in relation to Covid-19 across Scotland and the UK as a whole.

  • Social distancing is not possible on our coaches and we ask that you please respect your fellow travellers' personal space, and be patient whilst others are boarding and departing the vehicle. Everyone will be coping with the relaxed restrictions at their own pace and we would like to create a friendly environment for everyone on tour.
